Still A.L.P.S. My favorite pipes of all time are still briar and meerschaum, but these I can make well and nullify all your arguments against cobs. The bowl coating takes away any cob impartation on the flavor of the tobacco, the bamboo is higher quality than the wood in the regular shanks, the stem isn't thin nylon, and they look pretty rugged and bad ass. Yet to get a gurgle too - well, except for that one time a piece of tobacco got stuck in the airway (which can happen to any pipe).
